I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)


@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)


How To Pronounce "sea3On"

I say we settle this once and for all.


The name "Sea3on" is pretty nice. It's much more convenient to search "Sea3on" than to search "Sonic SatAM Fan-Made Season 3." Nonetheless, there is one major question that needs to be answered: How are you supposed to pronounce it? 


In the original casting call video, Matt referred to it as "Season." In a later video, though, he seemed considerably less confident about how it should be pronounced. (Both of these videos seem to have been taken down, probably because Paul is tired of receiving auditions.) 


Personally, I'm not a fan of calling it "Season." It sounds too much like, you know... Summer, Fall, etc. Plus, there just seems to be something unreasonable about it, I don't know. It's like, what about Season 1 and Season 2? I'm having trouble finding words for exactly why I don't like this pronunciation... but I don't. 


My brother facetiously calls it "Sea-three-uhn." I suppose it's the straight-forward way to pronounce it, eh? Like pronouncing SatAM "Sat-Ay-Em" (which I do). But... no, it's not working for me. :P


Personally, my preferred pronunciation is "Season Three." It's to the point, and in the context of Sonic, it seems pretty clear what you're talking about. (Of course, Sonic X has a third season... in space... but people shouldn't talk about that...) 


So yeah, what do you guys think? Are there any choices I forgot? Perhaps "Sea-*short pause*-uhn"? LOL

Hmm, "sea-three-son," that sounds kinda cool actually. I assume that rhymes with "treason," or is the "son" pronounced like the word "son"?

No! I didn't betray you! I swear it!  (taking advantage of having a Robotnik avatar)


If anyone's wondering why I thought this was important enough to get its own topic: This should be helpful if (1) Sea3on Animated moves forward and gets more narrated advertisements, and (2) Paul is looking down on this topic with his little beaver eyes.

What about "Threeson"?

The "n" should be really, really stressed, in case someone thought we were referring to other thing...

I don't translate "netspeak" or whatever you wanna call it. So, it's "see-three-on", for me.

I've always just thought of it being pronounced as 'Season Three'. I'm not gonna call it 'sea-three-on' in the same way that I wouldn't say 'f-three-ar' (F3AR), 'the-four-f' (Thi4f, before they changed the title) etc.
